Locals Of Nepal

Locals Of Nepal

All in or all out. The locals of Nepal, in general, apply this logic to all parts of life. If they feel lazy, they’ll be that to their heart’s content. When they are sad, you won’t miss it. Festivals will be celebrated as if celebration itself is going out of fashion. Eating meat doesn’t stop at just the flesh part, the lungs, the ears, the eyes, and even the tongue is relished to the core! Party with the Nepali locals once, you won’t look at music and dance the same way again. And best of all, have a Nepali befriend you with all their heart, and rest assured that the only thing they’ll want out of the friendship is your happiness.

Here is a photo series of locals in Nepal, some of whom you might even bump into on your visit to the nation of extremes.
